When the party, cake smash, and gifts are all done ahead of time, what is there to do for an incredible little girl turning 1?
Today Kensington was woken up with her favorite breakfast: Pancakes & Bananas (with a candle and a song of course) as well as gold glitter balloons. She was already in a great mood and the festivities only made her happier!
She wore her cute “One” -sie from Kookaburra shop while we played & ate!
After breakfast we decided on an impromptu trip to the Dallas Aquarium where we had a blast! David carried her on his chest and we were able to look at all the animals and fish! She really loved seeing all of the different creatures.
It was such a great special day. David bought her an anteater stuffed toy (that she loves even though it’s totally ridiculous) and she chewed on it and played with it the rest of the day. We ended dup going out to lunch and ice cream before heading home.
Then – some real talk – she’s had a cough on and off for the last 3 days that has us a bit worried. When she got home she napped, and then during dinner choked on a piece of food, her face turned purple, and she threw up everywhere. *Shrug* While Mom was slightly terrified (try jumping out of your seat, patting her on the back, freaking out internally while trying to appear calm), sometimes thats just how things go. She got a bath, mom got to clean the floor, and then we were all good as she played the rest of the night. As far as she is concerned – not a bad go at this birthday business.
Next year I think we’ll try to do without the near death experience but all in all a pretty great day.
